A 30-year-old died on Thursday evening, when Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) say two vehicles crashed in Dunnville in Haldimand County.

Officers say they, along with firefighters and paramedics, responded to a report of a two-vehicle collision on Robinson Road just north of Bartlett Road.

OPP say based on the investigation so far, police believe one vehicle was driving north on the road while the other drove southbound.

A witness told them both of the drivers were trapped in their vehicles and one of them was unresponsive.

Haldimand County Fire Services freed one of the drivers, but the 30-year-old had life-threatening injuries. First responders pronounced him dead at the scene.

Local paramedics transported the other driver to hospital with serious, but non life-threatening injuries.

Police say there were no passengers in the vehicles.

OPP technical collision investigators are helping with the investigation.

Robinson Road was closed for approximately nine hours while emergency crews and investigators were on scene.

There's no word on if any charges are being laid.
